His 20-plus years career is still thriving today and his notoriety spans several countries.

Ponce has hosted the Spanish-language versions of "The Voice" and "American Idol" as well as the Walt Disney Christmas Day Parade, the Miss Universe competition and multiple CBS primetime specials.  He has played voice roles in the animated film "Rio," the cartoon TV series "Maya and Miguel", and "Lady and the Tramp 2" and in the upcoming release of Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy.  Recently he also played the notable heartthrob fitness instructor Salvadore in "Couples Retreat" alongside Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau.
